Full S2 gear + shield for tanking?
I just bought the S2 chestplate, originally for my weekend arena matches. But then I compared it to what I have been using up to now (bold), S2 is better for tanking even if I socket it with DPS gems.
5/5 S2 with the shield has 181 resilience, or 4.6% crit reduction, tons of armor and stamina, unparalleled threat generation; but obviously low avoidance, however that can be compensated with the other slots.
This seems to be the way to go for any guilds at or below ours in progression: Gruul on farm, working on Magtheridon.
